Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

Severe Weather and Your Windows and Doors

No matter where you live in the country, you undoubtedly experience some sort of extreme weather. From snowstorms to hurricanes, we deal with many types of extreme weather. And when it does come, it’s comforting to curl up in your cozy home and wait out the weather knowing your windows and doors are guarding your home from the elements.

Be sure your home is prepped with great planning and protection, giving special attention to your windows and doors and their installation so your home is ready for extreme weather.

Here are a couple simple tips:

  • Make sure you have a quality installation – A quality installation leaves you with the intended structural integrity and proper water management during bad weather.

  • Look in to hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows offer additional protection to your home from items that could get strewn about in a storm.

  • Take a look at your seals – Every window and door has them, but depending on the age and location of your home, it is in good practice to double check the seals that help keep water away from your home during bad weather.

  • Clear the area around your home One of the best things you can do to protect your home is making certain that the surrounding area has no debris or low hanging branches that could crash into your windows and doors.
